Woman's shocking discovery about boyfriend after waking from coma

A woman has woken from a coma to discover the man she had planned to marry had moved on with a new life.

Brie Duval fell into a coma after she suffered life-threatening injuries from a freak accident where she fell from a car park during a night out in Canada in August last year, after she had moved to the country from Australia.

She was put on life support and unable to breathe on her own, according to a GoFundMe page set up to raise money for her.

She was in a coma for four weeks, and in hospital for a total of five months, a miraculous recovery after she was only given a 10 per cent chance of survival.


The Mirror reports she had suffered some amnesia after waking from the coma and only had her phone returned to her after she proved she could remember day-to-day details.

She realised however her partner of four years and the man she was living with had not been to see her and discovered he had blocked her on social media and ghosted her.

In a shocking twist, her partner had also already moved on with somebody else.

"I was finally given my phone and my first thought was to call him and just see if he knew what happened. He hadn't been to see me," she told The Mirror.

"So I opened my phone going to message him when a message pops up from this woman that says I am now with [partner's name]. I have moved him out. He's now living with me and my son, please do not contact him.

"I have not heard from him since I have been in hospital, he's completely and utterly left me in the dust. So I don't even have closure as to why this happened."

Brie added she had to deal with the news without her parents who were in Australia and restricted from travelling due to Covid.

After being released from the hospital earlier this year, she has since moved back to Australia and started sharing her personal experiences on her TikTok account @hotcomagirl1, and is working to move forward following the accident.
